    The brother of a murder victim shocked a courtroom on Wednesday as he offered an overtly religious act of forgiveness, urging the killer to turn to Jesus Christ. But you wouldn’t know that from the network morning show coverage on Thursday. Today, Good Morning America and CBS This Morning skipped the appeal to faith, instead portraying it as more generalized forgiveness. Later in the day, View co-host Joy Behar rejected the call to grace and instead insisted, “I think to hold onto the rage gives you strength.” Amber Guyger shot Botham Jean in 2018 when she accidentally entered his apartment,...

    During the sentencing phase of Amber Guyger’s trial on Tuesday afternoon, prosecutors highlighted past texts and social media posts which showcased racist and violent tendencies. Guyger, a former Dallas police officer, was found guilty Tuesday morning of murder in the shooting of 26-year-old African American accountant Botham Jean in his own apartment. Last September, Guyger entered Jean’s apartment, one floor directly above hers, thinking it was her own, and shot him in the chest before realizing the error. Despite objections from Guyger’s defense, Judge Tammy Kemp allowed jurors to see the texts and online posts.

    DALLAS - A former Dallas police officer who fatally shot an unarmed man in his apartment was found guilty of murder by a Dallas County jury on Tuesday.

    Ex-Dallas police Officer Amber Guyger was "unreasonable" when she mistakenly entered her neighbor's apartment "commando-style" last year and fatally shot him, thinking he was an intruder, prosecutors said Monday during closing arguments in her murder trial. "A guilty verdict in this case does not mean you hate police. This has nothing to do with politics," prosecutor Jason Fine told the jurors. But the defense argued to jurors that at that moment, Guyger truly believed she was acting in self-defense when she thought she was at her apartment, which is one floor directly below that of neighbor Botham Jean. "It's one...

    Last September, a white police officer shot and killed an unarmed black man in his own apartment. That much is settled. But nearly every other aspect Amber Guyger's murder trial for the killing of Botham Jean remains cloaked in controversy as opening statements in the case are set to start Monday. For some, the shooting was a tragic accident with circumstances that can only be described as "very unique." Others place it in pattern of white officers killing black men that, they say, points to systemic problems in American policing.
